The Challenge

The Results!

Spilling the Beans is a podcast-making challenge for anyone and everyone interested in telling stories using the podcast format. Taking place in Toronto, at Hacker You, Spilling the Beans is open to, and encourages, remote participation.

On the evening of March 3rd, participants will be provided with three "ingredients" they will need to include in a short podcast they will produce over the following 36 hours. On March 5th, the podcasts will be aired to judges, who will pick three winners based on a set of criteria participants will receive at the race's outset. Spilling the Beans is a creative exercise for everyone who wishes to participate. Whether you are you an avid podcast enthusiast or an occasional listener, Spilling the Beans will inspire you to create your own.
